Marvin and I had planned for months our trip to Hotlanta to enjoy Georgia Tech's Homecoming Weekend. Well Coldlanta would have been a more appropriate name for the city this weekend! We arrived Friday evening and checked in at the lovely Georgia Terrace on Peachtree Street.
We walked to dinner Friday evening, choosing to dine at Baraonda Italian restaurant at the recommendation of the hotel staff. They were on point...this meal was my favorite of the weekend. I had bruschetta with Marvin for appetizer then Lasagna for dinner. Marvin chose the seafood ravioli and we were both very happy with our meals. Dessert was salted caramel gelato...heaven!! But we noticed it was getting very cold! As we were on the 18th floor of the hotel, we could hear the wind blowing hard all night long. It seemed that the weathermen had made an error in predicting the temperature would be 52 on Game Day. Well I am sure you all heard about the record cold and snowfall in the south....We had planned to go to campus, watch the Rambling Reck parade and take a look at the Homecoming Displays. Well we cancelled those plans, hoping to save our reserves for sitting in the stands at the game.
Believe me, we were frozen to the core after three quarters in the wind. So we walked back to the hotel after the third quarter. I think we both warmed up about midnight!!
